Here I go!

Hello there!  I hope my first post finds all of you well!  For those readers who may not know, I have moved from Birmingham, AL to Washington, DC to start a brand new life adventure!  The title of the blog is in honor of my favorite Little Golden Book - "The Country Mouse and the City Mouse."  I'm sure there are lots of you who remember it!  I feel exactly like that little country mouse coming to the big city with her little hankie and apron!  Of course I moved to DC with all of my aprons, cookbooks, needlepoint projects and sewing machine in tow.  :-) 

I am earning a masters degree in Human Resources Management from Georgetown University (school starts September 2!) and will be working as a full time nanny for a wonderful family in DC.  They have two precious girls and a third baby on the way due in November.  My hands are going to be FULL!  I am so excited about this new journey and I hope that I can keep all of you entertained with lots of funny stories along the way.  Everyone has told me to "please keep in touch" and "email me and let me know how it's going".  As much as I would love to email everyone individually to keep you posted, I thought a blog might be a little more time friendly considering my free time is about to be VERY limited!!  Obviously I haven't done much with making the blog look pretty, but hopefully I'll have it looking a little less boring by the next post. 

Until then, I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend!!
